Return Comfort And Confidence To The Bathroom With A Stepless Shower
Falling causes many seniors anxiety, and with good reason as many hospitals are full of people who have slipped and fallen, but fortunately the majority of these were from people who had fallen whilst in Aged Care. The main culprit for 80% of these falls specifically in seniors at home, is the bathroom.
If you have limited mobility climbing in and out of a bathtub or shower with wet tiles can present a very real danger. Our certified plumbers can convert your shower to a stepless shower and help you to eliminate a lot of the danger while improving your daily safety.
Here are a few ways you can benefit from installing a stepless shower in your bathroom:
1. Increased accessibility
The stepless shower doesn’t have a curb or lip that you need to stop over, eliminating a common tripping hazard. Stepless showers also offer the possibility of wheeling a walker or wheelchair right into the shower, ensuring that no matter how long you live in your home the shower can meet your needs.
2. Customisable features
When designing your new stepless shower you can opt to include permanent or temporary benches, which give you the comfort and stability to bathe with confidence. By including grab rails and non-slip (R10 or higher, ideally) tiles you can create a safe and comfortable bathing environment, which can help you to keep showering a solo task.
3. Personalised designs
Our professional team can design a new future-proof bathroom for you within your existing bathroom. This ensures you can remain safe and comfortable in your home and bathroom for many more years to come.
